Dunno about security, my password is always 12345 – is it safe enough? :)

Btw, this is 3 years old thread…

There is a certain amount of risk with either option – lastpass or just keeping track yourself. I do prefer to store my own – it minimizes the risk. When you store passwords with someone else, you run the risk of someone hacking their system – especially when you have such a high profile target – storing security information for multiple sites for how many users? Ugh! I can’t even imagine the damage that hackers could do by cracking into a system like lastpass.

On the other hand, I recently had my Best Buy account hacked where the hackers used my stored payment info to make unauthorized purchases. Needless to say, I closed my BB account and changed EVERY password I had (after I did a full virus/trojan horse, etc. scan).

Feeling better with secure passwords now…..upper/lower case letters, numbers, symbols and at least 10 characters. I just wish Themeforest would allow me to keep my super secret, super secure password and not make me change it – seriously, how secure does a password need to be? :)

As long as no one has any access to your computer ( in real life, of course ), except yourself, it should be perfectly okay.

This tool is useful, btw :P

And yeah, this thread was created 3 years ago.

Any website that asks you to enter your password should be treated with EXTREME precaution.
